Zambia’s power infrastructure- revised June 2020

Issue 417
11 June 2020

Revised in June 2020, this map provides a detailed overview of the power sector in Zambia. The locations of power generation facilities that are operating, under construction or planned are shown by type – including liquid fuels, natural gas, coal, nuclear, hybrid, hydroelectric, solar (PV), wind, geothermal and biomass.

Generation sites are marked with different sized circles to show sites of 1-9MW, 10-99MW, 100-499MW and 500MW and above. 

Existing and future transmission lines are shown ranging from 66kV to 400kV. Actual and planned cross-border interconnectors are also shown including lines to Angola, Botswana, DR Congo, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe

Power generation data was drawn from our African Energy Live Data platform, which contains project level detail on power plants and projects across Africa.

The map is available as a PDF file using eps graphics, meaning that there is no loss of resolution as the file is enlarged.
